So, I really got the opportunity to show just how easy it is to make a complete idiot of yourself on the internet! I did this post last week, mistakenly using the wrong Colour Chameleons. A reader pointed it out, but I was so convinced that she was wrong and I was correct that I actually argued with her. I know. Mortifying. Quite rightly, she questioned how I could, when I am such a fan of these pencils, make such mistake. No mitigating circumstances other than brain not engaged and this:
My existing and personal stash of CT Chameleons, that I use at least weekly but have long since stopped noticing the names of – or, more mortifyingly, the colours. You can, as it turns out, have too much of a good thing so when I was sent the wrong set of pencils, I just blithely blogged away. The one useful thing to come out of this brain freeze is that in the last post is that I neglected to mention the one issue I have with the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleons – unstable lids. They come adrift from the body of the pencil far too easily and once that happens it’s goodnight Vienna for the moisture content of the product.
So, round two of the Charlotte Tilbury New Colour Chameleons and a massive sorry for being really, really dim. From bottom to top in the swatch: Gold Digger (green eyes), Enchanting Indigo (brown eyes), Mesmerising Mink (for blue eyes), Intoxicating Violet (for hazel eyes) and Bewitching Black (for anyone who dares!).
The joy of these shadows is that they’re so easy to use and yet so impactful. I find that they do need a colour keeper in the form of eye primer (Urban Decay is the one I use) to keep them from wandering, and you also need to bear in mind that the eye colour suggestions are exactly that – suggestions to amplify your existing eye colour. It doesn’t mean you can’t wear any of the other shades – there is no way that Intoxicating Violet is staying off my lids! As you can see from my existing stash, I’m a big fan of these although you need to get the sharpener specifically for them (which I think you should get for free).
